Quick Guide to Blackpool
Once touted as having "one million hotel beds", Blackpool's popularity has dropped somewhat since its heyday, but that just means you can get Blackpool holidays for less. It's still one of the UK's most popular seaside destinations though, thanks to its seven-mile beach, plentiful attractions, including Blackpool Pleasure Beach and of course, the famous Blackpool Tower.
Located in north-west England, this seaside town has recently become known for its lively nightlife, and plans are afoot to turn it into a Las Vegas-style casino haven! 2014 and 2015 holidays to Blackpool won't benefit from this though, so you'll have to satisfy yourself with the arcades, the amusements and the pleasure gardens. There is also one of the UK's best water parks.
If you're on a holiday in Blackpool at the height of the summer then you should certainly keep your eye out for the vintage trams that ply the usual tram routes at this time of year. Most of the trams are modern these days, but if you're lucky you'll get to take a trip on this piece of the past.
Fab holidays for:
UK beach breaks, Nightlife, Rollercoaster riders
Blackpool International Airport or Manchester.
